If you are thinking about moving to a competitor or setting up on your own you should take legal advice. You may find yourself accused of poaching employees and clients, or that you have breached your duties of confidentiality. This can result in costly High Court litigation.
We regularly advise senior executives as to whether the restrictions contained in their contracts of employment or LLP agreements – restrictive covenants – are enforceable. We can help you make your next move as risk free as possible. We can deal with threats of litigation from your old employer, advise you on how to avoid the risk of any claims, and negotiate with your new employer to ensure that you are not left exposed. If you are thinking about moving roles contact our Employment Law team.
